– PAIN MESOTHERAPY
What is Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is a treatment method in which drugs are mixed in very low doses and applied to the middle layer of the skin by microinjection method with special mesotherapy needles. For pain mesotherapy, combinations of local anaesthetics, painkillers, muscle relaxants, vitamins, and circulatory drugs are used in very low doses.
Which diseases is mesotherapy used to treat?
It can be used for supportive purposes in all kinds of painful conditions related to the musculoskeletal system (waist-neck hernias, neuralgia, calcifications, ligament tendon injuries, nerve compression, meniscopathy, etc.), circulatory disorders, vitamin deficiencies, vertigo, facial paralysis, headache.
What are the Advantages of Mesotherapy?
Injecting directly into the problem area eliminates the delay in effective dose and onset of action due to absorption. Since the drugs are given in very low doses and at long intervals, the risk of side effects is reduced. The drugs are absorbed slowly so that they can be effective for a long time, and the effectiveness of the drugs is increased by allowing combination therapy.
– Prolotherapy in Musculoskeletal Diseases
What is Prolotherapy?
Prolotherapy is an injection technique used to treat conditions that cause pain and dysfunction in the musculoskeletal system. The injection aims to stimulate the body’s repair mechanisms in the problematic area to regenerate the tissues. In this way, in addition to relieving pain, the underlying problem is also treated, so the effectiveness of the treatment is high, and it provides a more permanent treatment opportunity.
Which diseases is prolotherapy used in the treatment of?
Hip and knee arthritis, meniscus problems, waist and neck hernias, ankle ligament injuries, shoulder muscle and tendon injuries, shoulder muscle compression, tendonitis, tennis and golfer’s elbow, wrist tendon injuries, arthritis, heel spurs, Achilles tendonitis, neuro prolotherapy (hemiplegia, paraplegia, tetraplegia)
Which substances are used in Prolotherapy?
The most commonly used substance in prolotherapy is dextrose (sugar serum), but PRP (stem cell), CGF (concentrated growth factor), and ozone gas can also be used in the treatment depending on the disease and the patient’s condition.
How is prolotherapy treatment planning done?
First, after a detailed history, physical examination and auxiliary diagnostic methods are used to confirm the diagnosis, and some blood tests are performed to determine whether the patient is suitable for prolotherapy. Patients who are suitable for prolotherapy can be given food supplements, simple warm application etc., to strengthen the ligaments and cartilage.
What are the side effects of prolotherapy?
Generally, there are no severe side effects, allergies to local anaesthetics used to reduce pain during an injection can rarely develop, and the sugar content is very low and does not affect blood sugar. Although it is more common in the first 24 hours after the injection, especially in the first 72 hours, severe pain and heat increase may occur in the injection area; this is an expected effect and is related to the activation of the repair mechanism there, you should not use any painkillers other than paracetamol and tramadol in order not to reduce the effect of the treatment in this process.
– INJECTION TREATMENTS
In cases of gonarthrosis (knee arthritis), intra-articular fluid is replenished with an intra-knee injection of hyaluronic acid, thus treating pain and limitation of movement safely and effectively.
In tendonitis and bursitis, a decrease in oedema and pain and increased joint movements are provided by injecting corticosteroids and local anaesthetic.
Ozone, or a mixture of corticosteroids and local anaesthetics, is injected into the trigger points to relax the spastic muscles, thus eliminating the vicious cycle of spasms and pain.
– What is ozone therapy? Which diseases is it used to treat?
It is a treatment method using medical ozone gas (O3). Ozone is a transparent, colourless gas. It has a special odour.
Medical ozone gas is formed by mixing pure ozone and pure oxygen in a specific ratio. The medical ozone obtained is given to the patient in specific doses. The ozone dose varies according to the patient and the disease. Your physician, who has been trained and certified in ozone therapy, determines the dose to be administered.
Ozone therapy has many application methods. Major Autohemotherapy is the most commonly applied method, which involves taking 50-200 ml of blood from the patient, mixing it with ozone, and returning it to the patient. In addition, there are various application methods such as minor autohemotherapy, intra-articular, intramuscular injection, direct application to open wounds, bagging, rectal application, etc.
What are the benefits of ozone therapy?
It increases blood circulation to the tissues, helps to clean the blood and lymph system, leads to rejuvenation of the skin, strengthens the immune system, cures infections as it is a very strong antimicrobial, relaxes muscles, reduces pain, reduces pain by preventing joint degeneration, strengthens memory, reduces stress, increases toxin excretion from the body.
Which diseases is ozone therapy used to treat?
Joint pains and calcifications
Lumbar and neck hernias
Chronic fatigue syndrome
Diabetes and related complications
For detox purposes
For anti-ageing purposes
To strengthen the immune system
Hepatitis B-C and many other infectious diseases
Allergy – Asthma treatment
Candida treatment etc.
